Building with shaving foam!

This fantastic activity combines the love that children have for constructing and creating with sensory play.  We used wooden blocks for our 'bricks' but Lego, Duplo or Sticklebricks would work just as well.  Just provide a selection of 'bricks', some blobs of shaving foam (the type for sensitive skin is best) and blunt knives or spatulas to use as a 'trowel' and let them explore!  You could extend the play by drawing 'plans', adding in some counting, or linking to a story such as 'The Three Little Pigs'.  The beauty of this activity is that everything washes clean (including the children!) with a little warm water, and it smells great!
